AmericanInventorSpot.com had put up a questionnaire for people who auditions for American Inventor. We wre thinking that it would be good to cosolidate the advice from people with experience on the show and it would be helpful to folks as a reference for the future.
In doing other things on the site, I just forgot all about it....until now.
Somehow Stephane found the questionnaire and posted her advice.
I still don't know how she found it but I thought her advice may be of interest...and perhaps other inventors would be interested in filling out the questionnaire too?
It's here at http://www.americaninventorspot.com/aisurvey1
Thanks to Stephane for the posting.
Advice from Stephane:

Window Washing System
Our new window washing machine can be set up to clean the exterior of any window, large or small, on any building, low or skyscraper, by simply pressing a one-touch on/off switch. You will never have to employ a window washing team with ladders, elevators or scaffolding again. Our system is safer, less expensive, and you can wash any one window on any given day. Our system is simply better.
